Dr. Alford

I am so excited to serve as your Assistant Principal for the 2020-2021 school year!   I am a passionate school administrator that truly values meaningful relationships that will support all students.

I began my teaching career while living in Pittsburgh, PA and relocated to the Raleigh area in 2008.  I’ve spent the last 12 years serving as both a teacher and an Assistant Principal in this wonderful school district.

Currently, I live in Apex with my dog Buddy.  He’s a lovable, yet semi-annoying Cairn Terrier whom you will find that I talk about a lot!  I’m the oldest of five and the only girl.  My youngest brother is in his sophomore year at Fayetteville Academy and I have two twin brothers who are juniors in college.  My other brother lives in my hometown in Virginia. Needless to say, I’m a very proud sister! Outside of spending time with my family, I enjoy watching sports.  Pitt above everything, and Duke over UNC. Sorry Tarheel fans!  I also umpire softball throughout the year.

I couldn’t be happier to work alongside the Yates Mill family and am committed to doing what’s best for kids.  In the words of the great Rita Person, “Every child deserves a champion, an adult that will never give up on them.”  I strive to live up to those words every day for our students and am proud to serve such a wonderful community.

Together we will “Dare to Dream”!
